ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -New Mexico received notice from the NCAA of four potential rules violations involving three members of the Lobos' football coaching staff.
The university did not identify the coaches but said Friday that two are no longer on staff. No allegations are directed at head coach Rocky Long.
``We will not tolerate intentional violations of NCAA rules,'' New Mexico athletic director Paul Krebs said at a news conference. ``There is nothing more important to the health and well-being of an athletics department than integrity.''
The coaches allegedly helped four prospective student-athletes and a student-athlete who was enrolled at New Mexico to improperly obtain course credits at another college. Only two of the five ever played for the Lobos.
No current football players are involved in the allegations, which date from the spring of 2004 and fall of 2005.
